As much as I hate to give Hotel Silvia a bad review, I feel I have to, or at least let other know about our experience. When we arrived, we called for directions and someone came and picked us up, which we thought was wonderful! We were staying in one of the studio apartments so they are not attached to the hotel itself, but up a road beyond the hotel. Our apartment was very nice, fully equipped kitchenette, nice bathroom, lovely view of the mountains and lake.. We walked down to the town and ate lunch , enjoyed shopping, etc, but to get back to the hotel was QUITE a walk UP HILL on a very narrow road with LOTS of heavy traffic! We had to walk up and down the hill to go to the hotel / restaurant and breakfast. That night, our A/C didn't work well, so we opened the windows for a nice breeze, but there were dogs barking ALL NIGHT! We shut some of the windows to block out the noise, but still didn't help. We didn't sleep well at all. The bed was also very firm. We "woke" (although neither of us really slept) the next morning to a rooster crowing at dawn. When we got ready to check out, we had to haul our luggage down the hill to the hotel and then haul it down the narrow road again into town - ridiculous! I felt like if they were going to pick us up, they should have also offered to take us back down. We wouldn't stay there again or recommend it unless you have a car.
